Gillian Smith, Brisbane, Australia

Thanks so much John! I have my first solo show on Aug 6-20 in Brisbane. This painting is my keystone work and the exhibition is titled after it. I will have your award certificate at the gallery with it. I have included your award certificates with previous works when they sold too. The new owners love them too!

I have to tell you I have had the best year art wise. My seascape “Dark Clouds” which received a special merit award in your competition was the most recent sale and your award certificate was included. 

I also won this upcoming solo show “Salty Eyes” by winning a public vote prize so am just so excited.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your information packages and have shared them with many fellow creatives. The article re approaching galleries was most beneficial. I have even been approached by a gallery recently to come work with them in both a creative and promotional capacity! This all happened after sending them a thank you card as suggested in the article.

You make a difference in artist’s lives! Best Regards.
